Serves: 4 

  • 900g floury potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 15g butter
  • 100ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped lovage
  • 1 small pinch freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
  • salt and ground black pepper

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Place the potatoes a large casserole with enough salted water to cover, and bring to the boil. Cook the potatoes until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and mash with the butter until fairly smooth.
  2. Beat the milk in with a wooden spoon, and stir in the parsley, chives, lovage and nutmeg. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Lovage is an herb that has a spicy, almost celery-like flavour. If you can't find lovage, try using chervil, lemon balm, marjoram or even basil.
